I hate to say it, but there are still a number of shops out there still running Windows NT. In most cases, these machines are running legacy line of business applications that either won’t run on other versions of Windows Server, or the IT group that put the application in place is gone, and no one else knows how to migrate the application or the data or the tiers that the legacy application uses.
In some cases, I’ve seen that these Windows NT systems are also running some core Windows network infrastructure services. Some examples of core infrastructure services include WINS, DNS and DHCP.
Well, if you’re one of these people and want to move up into the 21st century – and if you have a DHCP server you want to migrate, then check out this blog post by the Windows Networking team. In this article they show you how to migrate your Windows NT DHCP server to Win2k or Windows Server 2008.
